Another Regressive Tax Increase in Wisconsin

It was reported over the weekend, but wasn't too clear.

Not only did the Joint Finance Committee (motto: "Smoke a joint, do finance!!") steal $20 million from cellphone users as Three-Card-Monte Doyle proposed.

They then re-instated the cellphone tax, UPPED it to seventy-five cents/month, and furthermore, applied the SAME tax to land-lines, too.

Meaning (of course) that the folks who depend on their landline (such as the elderly, by and large) will be paying a NEW telephone tax.
